Hello & Welcome!

At Kindred Portraits, (formerly Sara Kiyork Photography) we have had the honour of creating visual memories for Sydney clients for over fifteen years. We are a small but passionate creative team of professional photographers who believe in the positive power of photography to capture and celebrate every season of life before it vanishes forever.

Whether you’re here looking to book a photo session with us, or just wanting find out more, welcome! – this website is just for you!

Why invest in professional photography? 

Our clients are families who have a strong desire to capture their family story in a deeply meaningful way. Anyone can take a photograph. Few can capture a family’s essence with stunning photography, in a short time- every single time.

If you value the highest standard of creative visual storytelling that can only be delivered by professionals with experience in this industry, we are here specifically for you!

It is the ability to deliver the standard of photography you see in our galleries to every single client that sets our photography apart from mainstream. 

How is Kindred Different?

We are portrait specialists, with a passion for family stories told visually. We are known for the way we connect with children and families, our use of the natural environment and our creative vision. We provide personal, customised service and unique photographic products for every taste and budget. Please visit our Experience and Product pages to see what we create!

We shoot on location in the most incredible outdoor locations in Sydney and in our beautiful Mona Vale Studio.

At Kindred Portraits we believe in making memories with the people who light up your life. As a creative team, we understand how important it is to capture the NOW.

Kids grow up. Parents keep getting older. Time waits for no one. Photographing your moments are the only way to make them stand still forever. We cannot wait to document yours and create beautiful memories for you to treasure for a lifetime.
